benefits. we have asked experts to join us for a fiscal cliff roundtable discussion, if you will. ron brownstein is a senior -- cnn senior political analyst and editorial director of the national journal and stephen moore, senior economics writer at the "wall street journal" and is in washington, d.c. first up, ron, will, do you think, these politicians reach a deal or not and why or why not? >> the fiscal cliff was yeelted as a doomsday machine to try to give them more will power to do what they can't do on their own, to reach a deal. the reason all of this was here, incentive to reach a deal, some of your guests pointed out during the day, a lot can go wrong when you leave is it to this late, a little little surprising to me republicans don't feel urgency, talk about this in a minute, maybe, the wolf on the other side of the cliff, difficult for both sides, the country is worse for the republicans than the democrats. it's possible they make a deal, possible they go over, no more precision than that. >> are we thelma and luiz, rocketing towards that canyon? >> took the words out of m

mccarthy. ron barber. i'm still kind of shaking after my last interview, as i have been after several interviews with people who represent gun rights. it's the glibness of the argument. it's the callousness of the way they continue to justify the freedom of people who continue to use assault rifles. that's what they are, with these high-capacity magazines. carolyn mccarthy, when you hear this and the way the issue is framed what is your reaction? >> to be honest with you, i'm happy that you had him on, because america should see what we're up against and the lies that they take to the american people, and unfortunately, an awful lot of them believe that. what we're trying to do is save lives. what we're doing after this shooting, and to be very honest with you, you're going to be hearing from my colleague, you know, what happened in aurora, and what's happened in the last several years. and the shootings get worse and worse and worse. and so that we need to do something. and i do believe, because the country cannot go through what they just saw these last several days. i believe the c
to tony blair, we're talking to democratic congressman xavier becerra, republican senator ron johnson from the state of wisconsin, also pat houston, whitney houston's sister-in-law and manager and jeopardy champion ken jennings written a new book. it's tuesday, december 4th, "starting point" begins right now. >>> welcome everybody, you're watching "starting point." we're honored this morning to have the former british prime minister tony blair with us as our guest. he's going to be weighing in as a number of topics. we're going to talk about the fiscal cliff, we're going to talk about the global economy. we're going to talk about the civil war in syria. we'll talk about the royal baby coming soon. first we want to get right to zoraida sambolin for an update on the day's top stories. >> soledad, the fiscal cliff debacle, with 28 days remaining before drastic tax hikes and spending cuts take effect, a republican spending plan has been rejected by the white house. brianna keilar is live from washington. what now, brianna? >> well, right now it's about the pressure building and the clock kicki

's senior political analyst ron bram's team. thank you both for coming in. ron, you wrote an interesting column, i just read it, in the national journal about democrats having a more unified coalition after the election in november. what sort of negotiating advantage is that supposed to give them in the fiscal cliff situation. >> i think it's almost the inverse of what we saw in 2010 after big democratic losses in that election. the caucus was divided in the house and senate on whether to extend the bush tax cuts for everyone. republicans were unified, they insisted it be extended for everyone. president obama ultimately made a deal to extend them as you know, for two years for all taxpayers, which is how we are where we are now. democrats are virtually in lock step showing cracks, saying maybe we need to extend for those in the middle. it's a different circumstance. i think the leverage on the tax side, at least is clearly with the democrats, stalemates mean the tax cuts expired and democrats are more willing to live with that than republicans are. >> when you read between the lines her
deep sbeer his own shortcomings as a father. ron foreign yeah on the pain and promise of personal journalism. i'm howard kurtz and this is "reliable sources." -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> the most memorable moment on sunday night football took place during halftime. the game aired one day after that shocking tragedy in which kansas city chief's linebacker javon belcher allegedly shot himself and hids girlfriend and nbc sforts caster bob costas decided to dough vote his talking to guns. his own feelings were quite clear. >> you want some actual perspective on this? well, a bit of it comes from the kansas city based righter jason wit lock with whom i do not always agree but today said it so well that we may as well quote or pair phrase from the end of his article. our current gun culture, wit lock wrote, ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, but here, wrote jason wit lock, is what i believe. if javon belcher didn't possess a gun, he and kasandra perkins would both be alive today. >> gun control critics quickly declared war on cos
. our team ron brownstein, editorial director for "national journal" will cain a contributor for theblaze.com and co-anchor john berman sticks around with us. house speaker john boehner has a news conference this morning, going to happen in just about two hours at 10:00 a.m. eastern time there's no doubt a lot of the focus will be on exactly what it was that happened last night, house republicans abandoning speaker boehner forcing him to cancel the vote on plan b. now lots of folks are asking what happened in those negotiations and what are the implications of what happened in those negotiations? our senior congressional correspondent is dana bash, watching it unfold. did it feel like the train wreck it feels like this morning last night? >> it did. you can see it in slow motion all day yesterday. i watched republican leaders, twisting arms, cajoling fellow republicans on the house floor and in the evening it became panic. it became clear the speaker had a high number of his fellow republican members willing to defy him and it was clear he didn't have the votes. i'm told it w
are cnn contributor and democratic strategist maria cardona and republican strategist ron bonjin. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> ron, i'll start with you. reid and mcconnell, they really are the focus in the senate. in the house, it's speaker john boehner. i've got to ask you, is his job on the line if republicans balk at any deal that's reached? >> no, not at all. speaker boehner is extremely strong. his conferences support him and knows that he's been in a tough position trying to negotiate the fiscal deal with the president. he's been doing this for weeks, month, working on this deal. and you know, they gave it a shot. they tried their best. the house, you know, house republicans wouldn't go for it. and said, you know, it's up to the senate. and once -- if the senate passes something, the house now will consider it. so i -- i do think that the speaker is in a very strong position. and besides, this is a very difficult job. i don't see many republicans standing up and wanting to take speaker boehner on. not many other people could do the job like speaker bo
is not decimated. >> so joining us now are cnn contributor and democratic strategist lena cardona and ron barjean. is it me or does it appear that john mccain becomes more grumpy over time? he's like the neighbor, the guy when you put the ball in the neighbor's yard and he's like, hey, get out of my yard, kid. am i wrong with that? am i the only one who notices that, john? >> well, this is ron -- >> ron, i'm sorry. >> no, i think senator mccain makes some very good points about susan rice, and i think he's clearly frustrated about her comments that were made. i think he's frustrated about the fact she came to capitol hill and wasn't able to convince him nor lindsey graham or senator susan collins that she would be a good nominee to be secretary of state. so, you know, i think that's what you're hearing in his voice right now is a lot of frustration. >> i'm not only talking about this particular issue. we're going to get into the meat of that, but i'm talking about other issues, fiscal cliff and on and on and on. it just appears that way. lena, you heard some people talking about civil leaders wit
, killed by admitted gunman george zimmerman. but unlike martin's parents, ron davis tells me he does not believe race played factor in his son's death. >> i don't think -- it just happened to be an african-american child and a non-african-american person that pulled the trigger. i think that's the only comparison. i don't think the reason is the same. i think the reason for this gentleman was strictly anger and having the availability of a weapon. >> so your focus is on these guns. >> yes. >> your t-shirt even. show us this. >> yes. it says "kill guns, not kids." so we have to kill these gun laws. law enforcement has been trained. their the only ones i feel that should have guns in public. >> reporter: police arrested dunn a day later at his home after he fled the scene. the shooting puts florida's controversial stand your ground laws back in the spotlight, a law ron davis is determined to change. >> i'm going to focus on getting the weapons out of the hands that people haven't been trained to use. >> and dunn's attorney says she's still deciding which defense she will use should the
people. >> ron barber, i came on air on cnn maybe two years ago, just after the incident in which you were wounded and gabby giffords nearly lost her life and others did lose their lives. i imagine, following an attack on a congresswoman there would be such an outcry in america. there would be new gun controls then. but there weren't. then the aurora theater shooting, the worst in american history, there had to be some kind of change. but as the relatives of those who died who told me last night on the show, the president came and saw them and nothing happened. now, we have the worst school shooting in american history, is it ever going to change? or is the gun rights argument that was espoused to me earlier in tonight's show in that extraordinary way is always going to win the argument? or are other americans going to rise up and say enough is enough? >> well, i believe this terrible tragedy, taking the lives of 20 little people, the same age as my two youngest granddaughters, has affected america in such a deep way, that we're in a position to have, not just a discussion, but the ac
'm one of the directors for project imagination. >> we get the call from ron howard wants to involve celebrities taking photos from people that send it from all over the world and then doing a movie. directing a movie to it. >> i have always wanted to be behind the cameras. now it is giving me an opportunity to really flex that muscle and now with the tutelage of ron howard and having canon backing, you know, i just don't want to mess it up but i think it will be fantastic. plus, ron howard and i have a little bit of a history. >> little bit of a history. that cameo. >> yeah, yeah. ♪ >> would you be in this video? he said what is it? rying to move forward the idea of filmmaking by involving the public. >> when i was in texas, i didn't know where to go with all of my creativity. but now with what canon is doing, people from missouri and people from north carolina, they are -- they can now be a part of hollywood. >> this is groundbreaking because this for the first time will be part of the festival. >> having the festival part of it makes it an event. now people can come and now peop
, and republican strategist, ron bon john. some say the fact that we're not hearing much of washington is a good sign, and in this case, silence is golden. you guys agree? >> yeah, i definitely do. look, one of the things that we've got to realize here is that the more that this fight takes place in public, the less is being done behind closed doors, because everyone feels that they have to justify the public rhetoric. so i think that we have two silences going on. there's barack obama and john boehner working things out and the republicans realizing that they've got to find a way to negotiate. so silence is golden for christmas season. >> do you agree, ron bonjean? >> yes, i completely agree. i think that silence is best. and right now while they're figuring out how to put a deal together, i think the president softening his rhetoric in michigan on the issue yesterday was extremely helpful. you know, what we are still far apart, as far as we know, on entitlement reform, spending cuts, raising the rates, you know, we've been talking so much about raising taxes that we're not talking a lot about

constructive talks, i believe those are the quotes. i have with me, ron brown, cnn contributor. ron, it's not how it works in washington, the straight up-or-down vote. >> it hasn't for a long time. there are two separate things here. there's the filibuster in the senate. but the biggest obstacles is the hastert rule in the house. it has always been hard to see bill that a majority of house republicans would vote for that would be acceptable to president obama. so in many ways, i felt for really months, the only two choices were going over the cliff or abandoning that hastert rule and john boehner being willing to bring up a bill that could be passed by democratic votes, not passed by the majority of republicans. sounded a little more optimistic on the relative gauge we have than over the last couple of weeks. >> they're now running out of venues to discuss this. they discussed it at the white house. tried to get a deal between speaker boehner and president obama. now it's gone to the senate. harry reid and mitch mcconnell will try to work something out. after that, they have run out of

the president asked to see me and ron panetta and he said, i want to reenergize the hunt for osama bin laden. i want to make this your top priority. i want to get reports every 30 days. >> august 2010, leon panetta comes back to the president with some information. correct? >> that's correct. in the summer of 2010, the cia live and led by leon panetta came to us and indicated that they had evidence that was interesting to them at that point that led them to believe that there was a high value person of interest in a compound there. >> at what point did it become clear that there was a high likelihood that the person at that compound was osama bin laden? >> well, you say high likelihood, fareed, this is why it was a tough decision. even at the last principal's meeting, which was on april 28th, 2011, where the principal sat with the president and gave them their view whether to go or not, even at that point, it was a wholly circumstantial case. there was not direct evidence that you could present to the president at that point saying we guarantee you, we have direct evidence that osama bin laden

next guest actually agrees with the democrats for once. and thinks that this bill is a mistake. ron meyer is spokesman of american majority action, a national conservative organization. and i just want to make sure that i let people know that you don't agree with the democrats, it's not like you're switching sides here. you just have a lot of criticism of speaker boehner. you haven't really appreciated the way that he's handled these negotiations. what do you make of this plan b? >> well, i have some news to break on it actually. i talked to some really good sources in the house of representatives and staff members and they think that this plan has no shot to pass the house, that it doesn't have the conservative votes. doesn't have the republican votes. there is a growing number of republicans from us straighted with speaker boehner. the problem is not tax revenue. the problem is spending. we've increased spending a trillion dollars in the last five years and we can't have enough revenue to make up for that. we would have to have the biggest tax revenue increase ever as far as the r

in ron brownstein for "the national journal." >> good morning. >> good morning. we're talking about this whole idea of a fiscal cliff was absolutely not supposed to happen. >> this was a machine that the two sides built to give guy them more will power to do what they didn't want to do to begin with. which is compromise. they could not reach a deal to destabilize the federal government's long-term finances so they built this to put more pressure on themselves to reach a deal now. and even this does not seem to be enough to do it, to force them to make the difficult concessions that are required for the two sides to come together this is indignant of a broader problem we face of a red coalition and blue coalition that reflect very different visions of american and show less and less cooperation. we are looking at a dividing government for the next two years and more likely next four years. if they can't make an agreement on this, how will they make progress on anything else? >> divided government that is getting deeper red, deeper blue, right? and there doesn't seem to be any clear l
analyst ron braunstein. you talk about in this article that i just read, fascinating, two groups. the brown and the gray. what are the differences between them and how are they clashing now that we get closer and closer to the fiscal cliff? >> the brown and the gray is a phrase i've been using for the last few years to describe the two giant generations that will shape american life in the coming decades. the brown is the millennial, the most diverse in american history. over 40% nonwhite. the gray is the aging baby boom which is joining the silent generation in a huge senior cohort that is 80% white. and they have very different political inclinations, preferences and different interests at stake in the fiscal cliff and budget negotiations. on the one hand, taxes verse spending and so does the kind of spending. discretionary spending mostly investments in the future. entitlement spending mostly income security for the older generation. >> so who benefits if we do cross the fiscal cliff? >> i think there is no question that getting the debt and deficit under control is in the int
